WND: Grassley demanded data on ‘lowest rated’ food.

The Obama administration did a rapid U-turn on its decision to remove pork products from federal prisons after a few questions from Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley.

The federal Bureau of Prisons’ reversal of the Oct. 1 menu change comes just one week after its spokesman, Edmond Ross, said pork was the “lowest-rated” food among inmates.

“To corroborate the validity of the claim that prisoners indicated a lack of interest in pork products, I am requesting copies of the prisoner surveys and responses that were used to support the determination to no longer serve pork in federal prisons,” the Republican senator wrote to the agency on Thursday, the Washington Post reported. “Please provide any economic evaluations the Bureau of Prisons has relied on that detail the cost of pork as compared to beef, chicken, and non-meat products such as tofu and soy products.”

Pig products were back on the menu within hours of the letter’s publication.

  1. Love your avatar kitties whiskeycart.

    Banning pork was Obozo bowing and kneeling to his superiors in CAIR. Allahu Fubar B. Hussein.

  2. Now the muzzie prisoners will piss and moan that their meals were prepared using the same equipment and utensils as the pork dishes.

    Sort of like keeping kosher, meat and milk dishes, on steroids.

  3. Just one more bit of evidence that Obama stands with the Muslims by trying to make the prison menu sharia compliant.
    Wonder who suggested this as a good idea? Valarie or one of the many Muslim Brotherhood visitors to the WH.

  4. Not interested in bacon? Pork chops? Wantin’ tofu, instead.

    I’m callin’ turbo-powered, high-velocity, laser-guided bulls!t on the existence of any such survey.

  5. While I know it won’t happen however if it’s proved that the prison administration lied about the “surveys” then somebody needs to be very publicly fired for putting the lives of it’s employees at risk. prisoners have rioted for less.

  6. Crybabies at CAIR reportedly hardest hit by new stance on pork in prison. Heh.

    IMO, denying federal inmates bacon with their breakfast is cruel and unusual punishment.
